You can either chose to use those dlls generated from the source code after rebuilding or sign them using your own key.  If you chose to use the unsigned ones you should modify your configuration file to refer to those assemblies.  Just change the PublicKeyToken attribute value to null and if you want to open it using the entlib config tool, you should use the one which is located in the EntLib41Src\bin folder, not the one from the installation folder.  If you choose to strong-name the assemblies, a link on how to do this is included in the documentation - Introduction to Enterprise Library -> Guidelines for Modifying the Application Blocks
